SRH are in contention for a play-off spot

As the play-offs are just around the corner, the competition is getting heated up and this time therer are a lot of teams in contention for a spot in the last four. And Sunrisers Hyderabad are one among them after missing out last season. Tonight they take on the Kings XI Punjab who remain the only team to be knocked out of the competition already. With the Kings XI offloading Mitchell Johnson and Shaun Marsh from their squad, you can expect them to field Thisara Perera tonight.

SRH have strengthened their batting in the recent games by bringing in Eoin Morgan and leaving out Trent Boult despite the Kiwi doing well. They have trusted their Indian bowlers and the plan seems to be working well so far.
